New Indian Coach will be appointed before Sri Lanka tour: Rajeev Shukla

21 June 2017

Anil Kumble on Tuesday stepped down as India's head coach saying the Indian cricket board had informed him that Captain Virat Kohli had reservations about his "style". Meanwhile, BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary thanked Kumble for his services to the Indian team.

It has been a sad, unfortunate week for Indian cricket.

"India have won everything since the time Anil took over", he added. "I remember my sir doing the same.he still does it!" "Differences (can) happen in any team but see the results". Team India left for the island nations immediately after the Champions Trophy from England.

Earlier, it was reported that as many as ten players were against Kumble continuing as India coach.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced on Tuesday that Kumble had made a decision to step down despite the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) endorsing an extension to his contract.

However, there are lots of talks suggesting that Sehwag, despite his zero coaching experience in the global scenario, is one of the frontrunners for the job.

"Team India will get a new head coach before the tour to Sri Lanka".

Kumble issued a strongly-worded statement, claiming an "untenable partnership" with captain Virat Kohli meant he could no longer carry on, having been expected to extend his initial one-year deal.

"Gratitude has obviously been thrown out of window by whoever raised this "revolt".", tweeted the spin great, calling it a loss for Indian cricket. Kumble chose to stay back in London and attend an ICC Cricket Committee meeting which was evident he no more wanted to continue as a coach as the difference between him and Kohli has reached its pinnacle.

There were also reports that Sehwag had sent a two-line CV for India coach's post to the BCCI.

June 20, 2016: Anil Kumble resigns. "Before the Sri Lanka tour, the coach will be appointed and it will be the best coach for India", added Shukla. An Indian Express column said the pressures of modern cricket demanded a "strong chain of command".

Playing safe, Shukla said, "All these are speculations".
